    36-24 = 12
    34-11 = 23

    Your new mech needs to cover 35 tooth capacity.

    What mech do you have now - if you are using it on a triple it will work.

    Ok then thanks a lot think tht means I need a medium cage in SRAM mechs looking on oter posts and also have a specialized big hit which is single speed on the front 8 rear so looking to get double front and 9 rear to make it an all mountain rather than just a downhill cheers tony

    as long as it has a range of 35 or more and you have a sram shifer of the correct speed then yes.
